Anti Virus Help

If you receive an email warning about a virus

It's difficult to distinguish between real and hoax virus warnings. If you receive a warning about a virus first of all please consider if it may be a hoax.  Many hoaxes can be identified by a request to forward the information to everyone you know.  No genuine anti-virus information makes this suggestion.  If you receive a message about a hoax virus, the best thing to do is delete it.
